Sept. 5, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The UK College of Engineering invites the UK community to attend the Ralph G. Anderson Building dedication ceremony at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 6.

The building creates a new campus green framed by Miller Hall and the White Hall Classroom Building. It also completes a new College of Engineering Quadrangle, establishing a strong identity for the UK College of Engineering.

Kentucky Gov. Paul Patton, UK President Lee T. Todd Jr., UK College of Engineering Dean Tom Lester and Ray Bowen, president emeritus of Texas A&M University, will participate in the ceremony and recognize the project's major private donors: Anderson, Joseph G. and Suzanne W. Teague, Oliver H. and Anne Raymond, John M. Rachal, Kentucky Utilities Co., Lexmark International Inc., and William T. Young.

The building's design is a contemporary interpretation of the established architectural character using pure planes of brick and limestone on a concrete frame. Building material selection and rooflines respond and connect to the character of the historic core of the campus.

The interior of the building features fully networked classrooms, space for student design projects, ultra-modern laboratories and auxiliary equipment, and ample space for students to study, interact, exchange ideas and contemplate.

Tours of the building will be conducted immediately following the ceremony.
